    Ah, looks nice. I was lazy and just used a Reprolabel with clear backing on the chest piece.

    How much force was needed to pop the clear plastic bit out?

    Just hold the hole punch and slowly push it pops out real easily.

    Care to describe (pictures optional) as to how you did this? Did you pop off the chest piece from the front or something?

    Yeah, removing all that stuff seems unnecessary since the bits where the chest piece are pegged in can be reached with all that stuff still intact.

    Did you have to hammer on the pegs with the hole punch? I don't have a hole punch and I've tried using a small screwdriver to push on the pegs before without much success.

    There is glue around the pegs holding them in place, if you put a little force on one side then the other occassionally scraping at the side of the glue the front should come out. I did this earlier with my wheeled and Jet vehicon. i took mine apart to get easier access to the pegs but you can just do it without taking the back apart.

    Glue explains it. It's pretty tough to scrape it off though.

    i just took a small screw driver and scrapped the excess off the pegs that you can clearly see on the left and right side on the back. i then just carefully pushed on it yet holding a finger/thumb over the chest and just popped it up on both sides, comes right out. goes in fine as well. no re gluing or anything.

    Nice mod thank for that. May I ask what is the ideal size Decepticon sticker for this? Which one did you use?

    I have some Takara sheets but the smallest one seems a tad big. Did you cut yours down?
